The other side of the "Street Hawk"
17 February 2004 | by ChockysSee all my reviews

I saw this series as a boy and was simply wonderful. The best thing of the series was the bad guy, a biker riding on a black motorcycle, dressed in black from head to toe. The biker was like the other face of "Street Hawk": instead of being the hero, he is the villain who time and time again harassed the principal characters to recover the emeralds and diamonds that he had robbed and the guys had taken from him. The biker was like a ghost, because he always managed to find the guys. An exceptional series of my childhood, a unforgettable villain and a unique time (the 80's) where TV shows like this, more "Chocky" and his sequels, "The Gemini Factor", "The Box of Delights", "Moondial", "Supergran", "Other World" and "Návstevníci" among others are classics by own right.
